not realize this huge trade deficit we have. half of it historical has been energy products, mostly oil. if you get to the point where you are a self-sufficient producer -- i am glad you said north american energy independent. i always disliked the idea of this national energy independence. if you become energy self- sufficient, you eliminate half the trade deficit. this really changes the balance of payments and the overall shape and direction of the economy. could you speak to that? >> i for started talking about it two years ago. -- i first started talking about it two years ago. i started talking about what was possible with oil. i was a lone wolf in the woods at the time. since then, the bandwagon has loaded up. a lot of other people are saying, yes, it could happen, and it to be very important for america. particularly as it translates from energy to the general economy. there are more pillars' out there, housing, manufacturing -- they depend on recovery. the one that does not is energy, because the international demand is already there. it has been created by china, india. all ar
as conservatives must dedicate our energies to growing the economy to showing younger generations on winning the future. we need to grow the middle class. that doesn't line government. if more government were the answer to our problems, our economy would be booming right now. that's been tried. you can't hire enough government workers or give enough taxpayer money to your friends who own green energy companies to create prosperity. the facts are in. that path is a disaster. balancing our books is not what matters most. government is not the end all and be all. the health of america is not about america at all. balancing the backs is a nice goal but that's not the primary objective. we need to focus our efforts and ideas to grow the american economy, not the government economy. i'm going to talk about a couple of other points but if you take nothing else from what i say we must not become the party of austerity. we must not be the party of austerity. we must be the party of growth which we know that government is out of control and the public knows that too and we just lost an election. we ca
silicon energy in marysville are leading the world with some of the most durable solar cells ever built. janicki industries in sedro- wooley is driving innovation in aerospace. valve, a software company in bellevue has grown into a worldwide leader in interactive entertainment. and in grays harbor an across- the-board effort led to the re- opening of the paper mill last year, putting 175 people back to work making 100% recycled paper. i had this to say about washington. innovation is in our genes. [applause] we create. we invent. we build. so now we must go forward, with both high ambition and a recognition that the power of innovation will fuel the next wave of job growth in washington. make no mistake, our top priority today, tomorrow, and every day for the next four years, is jobs. we must build a working washington, capable of sustained economic leadership in a rapidly changing world. my plan focuses on job growth in seven industry clusters. aerospace, life sciences, military, agriculture, information technology, clean energy technology and the drivers of economic growth and job cre
that is creative and thinking. it is creative to look to programs like modular housing, energy efficiency, procurement initiatives, etc. it certainly will not avoid this kind of disasters, but improved response and mitigate their effect in the future. >> for me the most frustrating thing has been a lack of transparency. especially when it comes to businesses. we have found a message that has been put out there at this local events and the media is just disconnected from reality. that is incredibly frustrating for us as we try to fit into this ecosystem. we're not trying to duplicate something that does not exist. for the business owner, they might only try one avenue and they give up. this said, the heck with us. they're not going to do what they said there are going to do. why should i was my time with us? there was an article in bloomberg business week in december that i was interviewed for a when they were talking about, why are more businesses not taking disaster loans? at the time it was written, they had made a grand total of 70 loans to businesses in new jersey. we had a 23. they h
to the country, here is our plan for the country, for the budget, for healthcare, for energy, defense. when we do that, we put our plans out against the president 's results, i think we will compare quite favorably. we will win back the trust of the american people and put our plan into action. that is what you do in moments like this. pick yourself up, dust yourself off, fight for what you believe in, and get back to work. the challenge is continued to mount. it is easy to get discouraged by it all. the election lost. the difficulties of the changes are coming. but it is a mortal sin to despair. i'm not ready to give up. i know you're not either. you would not be here if you wear. that is why i'm asking you for your help. every conservative needs to be involved. after the election, i needed to take a little bit of time. i needed to get into the woods. that is where i read charge. i took my daughter with me. she got her first ddeeer. [applause] that is what we do where we come from. i know other people cannot relate to that. but i realized sitting next to her, talking to her in the woods and how
remarkable. you did great things -- your 1/3 renewable energy mandate -- the reform of workers compensation -- the reorganization of state government -- protecting our forests and strengthening our timber industry -- reforming our welfare system -- and launching the nation's first high speed rail system. but, of course, governing never ends. we have promises to keep. and the most important is the one we made to the voters if proposition 30 passed -- that we would guard jealously the money temporarily made available. this means living within our means and not spending what we do not have. fiscal discipline is not the enemy of our good intentions but the basis for realizing them. it is cruel to lead people on by expanding good programs, only to cut them back when the funding disappears. that is not progress -- it is not even progressive. it is illusion. that stop and go, boom and bust, serves no one. we are not going back there. the budget is balanced but great risks and uncertainties lie ahead. the federal government, the courts or changes in the economy all could cost us billions and drive
the special with the word in green energy. it seems obama was able to escape where carter did not get reelected. what gives you hope was essentially carter lost. >> his policy does not work. he is doubling down on them. there is a reason most presidents have a very challenging second term. they tended to overreach. president obama is giving every indication he will push for a radical and liberal agenda. it is that going to work or will it backfire? i believe the results of this election will further the process of new leaders stepping forward. we will do a better job making the argument. one of the ones you have is fox news, msnbc, cnn. we're living in parallel universes. do you watch fox is predominantly? [applause] you thought romney was going to win with 70%. if you watch msnbc, god help you. [laughter] a consequence of that, we did not do a good job communicating to those who were not already in the choir. let's take young people. young people voted overwhelmingly for barack obama. we did not carry the message. if you are a young person coming out of school, why would you be votin
energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. but america cannot resist this transition, we must lead it. we cannot cede to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and new industries, we must claim its promise. that's how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national treasure -- our forests and waterways, our crop lands and snow-capped peaks. that is how we will preserve our planet, commanded to our care by god. that's what will lend meaning to the creed our fathers once declared. we, the people, still believe that enduring security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war. (applause) our brave men and women in uniform, tempered by the flames of battle, are unmatched in skill and courage. (applause) our citizens, seared by the memory of those we have lost, know too well the price that is paid for liberty. the knowledge of their sacrifice will keep us forever vigilant against those who would do us harm. but we are also heirs to those who won the peace and not just the war; who turned sworn enemies into the surest of friends -- and we must carry those
